Monumental Pair of Murano Glass Vases Wired as Lamps with Gilt Bronze Mounts

$7,950per set

About

A monumental pair of murano glass vases wired as lamps with gilt bronze mounts. On a small island in the Venetian lagoon, Murano, artists make magic with common materials and great artistry. While it is believed that glass making started in the 8th century in Venice, it is known that in 1291 the glass makers were moved to this somewhat isolated island, so that their furnaces would not burn the city down. The colorful glass has long been a favorite with collectors. The Art Deco period to which these massive lamps belong was one of the most productive periods. Each piece is hand made so no two are identical. The sleek Art Deco shapes contrast well with the richness of the Bronze Dore Mounts, yet will find a comfortable home in any decor. Light up your room with style and enjoy.
